The Edge has opened up about the recent incident that saw him falling off the stage mid-song on the opening night of U2's tour in Vancouver recently.

The guitarist was so engrossed in playing 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' that he failed to notice where the stage ended and fell off the side.

Luckily, he wasn't seriously injured - but in a new interview with CBS, the band have discussed how the tour could have been the "shortest tour in history" if he had been. Bono, on the other hand, jokes that he "was thinking about days off, myself".

You can watch he and the band discuss the incident - as well as get an insight into the workings of the tour - below.
